Word Problem Wednesday: Photography, Fractions, and Percents!

Jan 24, 2018

Strike a pose for math improvement! This week’s word problem Wednesday is about a flash sale that would make anybody snap to attention! The challenge below will help you practice elementary math concepts such as fractions and percents. So don’t divide your attention (hint, hint) but focus on the matter at hand to really develop your awesome math skills!

Challenge: Deb usually shoots glamour portraits for $26.00, but today they are discounted at 75% off. How much do glamour portraits cost today?

Don’t forget to check back next week for the solution and the next Wednesday Word Problem! 

Solution: Since 75% is the same as ¾, the price of the discounted glamour portraits is ¼ the original price. So, the glamour portraits cost $26.00 ÷ 4 = $6.50.
